If you watch this video, please leave some feedback, I'm a little unsure on how clear the explanations are.

I thought this was a good explanation of the Philidor position. I was already familiar with the main idea, and I think you hit all the points. Just a quick question, though. If black allows Kb6 (in front of the pawn), is it possible for black to still draw? It seems that white can transpose into the Lucena position and win.

I think it's great that you are doing these positions because they are very beneficial to study...

Excellent video Josh

It never hurts for beginners or even experienced players to remind themselves of the basics. This especially helps when you're down and time and you have this position memorized. That allows you to play it quickly over the board and not waste time calculating.

Great video, I wish I had video's instead of having to read books to learn positions like these, when I played at that level

Thanks! It would be great if you could upload some more videos on endings... That´s the weakest bit of almost all non professional chess players...
Keep up the good work!!
Greetings from the Black Forest!
